Tammy Abraham could cure Chelsea’s woes in attack and the club should re-signing the striker for £68m this summer.
The England star left Stamford Bridge in 2021 to join Roma, after Chelsea’s record £97.5m deal for Romelu Lukaku.
Abraham has taken his game to new heights under Jose Mourinho in Italy and he hit 27 goals in his debut season at the Stadio Olimpico.
Lukaku was sent back to Inter on loan after just one campaign back at Stamford Bridge and the Blues will attempt to sell the Belgian on a permanent deal this summer.
But Graham Potter’s side have lacked a cutting edge in front of goal this season, scoring only 29 goals in 27 appearances.
Potter therefore wants to sign a forward this summer and the Blues have been linked with Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.
But Sutton says Chelsea should trigger a reported £68m release clause in Abraham’s contract – which is believed to become active in July – to bring him back to Stamford Bridge.

‘Tammy Abraham is an out and out No.9 and Chelsea decided to let him go,’ Sutton told Betting Sites.
‘That was a bit of a strange one, but of course they expected Lukaku to come in and have a stormer which he didn’t do.
‘Buying Tammy back is one of those that I could see happening. I think he’s done pretty well at Roma. The criticism of Chelsea is that while they have lots of creative players, they don’t actually have somebody to stick the ball in the net.
‘So I actually think £68m would be a smart piece of business to bring Tammy Abraham back to Chelsea.’
